This article omits much about his military career. He followed the 22nd Virginia to the Kanawha Valley in September 1862, but resigned his commission in order to return to his salt business.

He is my cousin. We share Edward, the father of Narrows, Virginia and Revolutionary War hero. What I wanted to add to this, besides being able to boast about being cousins, is something I find that is not often discussed, or perhaps known, about John P. and is very interesting, and it is that he is indeed related to Nathan Hale, the Revolutionary War hero. One night, when I had nothing better to do, I traced our Virginia line and Nathan’s Northern line, and while I do no claim to be a genealogist, it would appear from records that both Nathan’s Northern line (1632) and John’s Southern line, with its earlier arrival date in Virginia in 1620, are the same Kent County, England Hales. If I can find the paper I traced the lines on, I will come back and show the joint in the family tree of these two great Americans. Hale yeah! :)
